OK, I may have underestimated how sick I am earlier

Earlier today I wrote a post explaining how guilty I felt accepting a last minute shift in work then having to cancel because I started throwing up, I felt fine at that point and honestly thought I could have done the shift.

I may have underestimated how ill I might in fact be, you see I hadn't eaten anything else when I wrote that post, I honestly did feel fine then.

However I have since had something to eat, thrown up another twice and feel awful now. Maybe I am sick after all.

I had planned to organise all my notes for my Acute Care module so that I could really hammer the studying from tomorrow on, I have my exam for that class next week but I think I will just sit here with a book. I have Mick Foley 'Countdown to Lockdown' to keep me company. For anyone that doesn't know Mick Foley is a semi-retired (because no one ever really retires) Pro wrestler and genuinely one of the funniest authors you will ever read. This book is his fourth autobiography, well it's more like memoirs really of a particular time when he left the WWE and eventually ended up in TNA, the book is about the journey to their 'Lockdown' Pay Per View show. Mick also writes fiction novels though and I honestly recommend them to anyone, heck even if you are not a wrestling fan check out his first two autobiographies, which really are more autobiographical than the one I'm reading now, they are so funny and yes you have to be a wrestling fan to get the jokes in parts but both books didn't make it to number one on the best seller list by being read only by wrestling fans. I know of more than a few non-wrestling fans who have enjoyed his first two books.

Oh and if you are going to read them, get the paperback versions, totally worth it for the bonus chapters. Particularly the one in 'Foley is Good' which has the wonderful subtitle 'and the real world is faker than wrestling' Seriously read this book, you will see that he is right. The bonus chapters are about the censorship of wrestling on TV, Mick compares this to many daytime American TV shows and movies and you realise that the TV shows are by far the worst offenders.

(that's not a typo by the way, wrestling fans will get it)

It sounds like you have some good company in your reading. I hope whatever you have is gone by tomorrow.

melody23 Hope you get better soon, in the meantime I enjoyed your review, but I am not a fan of WWE, so will pass this time.

Sorry you've been ill. So many people with this bug. Hasn't dampened your enthusiasm for wrestling, though.

Hope you're feeling better soon. Last time I was sick was when I'd over indulged on the alcohol a bit, so once that was gone I started to perk up again.

I'm sorry you turned out to be sick after all. So take it easy and get well so you can handle the studying.

Its great that you were able to read in the state you are in. I would just want to sleep.
